The First Amendment of the United States Constitution states, “Congress shall make no law . . . abridging the freedom of speech.” The right to freedom of speech allows individuals to express themselves without government interference or regulation.

Some public forums may discriminate against certain classes of speakers or types of speech from being presented within that forum.
